How will my artwork be shipped?
We use bubble wrap, foam, industrial cardboard and sometimes timber to make either a box, a crate or a cylinder to ship paintings or works on paper. Upmost care is given when packaging to ensure a safe delivery. Over 20 years of shipping paintings we have had 100% safe arrival.
Our shipping rates are based on courier fees determined by the destination, measurements and weight of the artwork. Priority shipping via FEDEX a three day delivery, or a normal delivery rate which depending on destination can be up to 10 days.
Once you have chosen an artwork using our contact form request price and delivery costs, shipping address is required so rates can be calculated. We can offer you various options for delivery.
How shipping costs are calculated
There are several factors used to assess total shipping costs for a work, including:
- Weight and dimensions of the work*
- The buyer’s location (for canvas and works on paper)The type of packaging materials can factor into the weight and dimensions of the parcel. A moderate size work can be rolled in a cylinder as can works on paper, a large work, for example, may require a wooden crate, which costs substantially more than a cardboard box.
Can I come pick up my artwork?
We invite art lovers, collectors or first time buyers to visit the studio to find their perfect artwork. We can then help you with packaging to ensure your painting arrives at your destination safely. We offer advice on how to hang you painting safely.
Can you deliver my artwork if I am local?
We offer a very personalised service to ensure your work is delivered safely and if required Svein will hang the painting.
Do you ship internationally? What does it cost?
NOTE 24/2/2017: Since we have relocated from Belgium to Melbourne, Australia the calculated shipping price is presently no longer correct. This will be addressed shortly.
The price of shipping is automatically calculated from Belgium for the artworks which can be bought directly online. (“Abstract Small Works” and “Works on Paper“). You can calculate the shipping price to your country either when you have an item selected in your shopping cart, or when you are filling in the delivery address before making your payment. However we have world wide delivery of all artworks. Please use our contact form to request the shipping price (country and state is required for price) for all other artworks or if you are in doubt.
Please note, all International purchases are subject to the specific country’s customs and duty fees which are not included in the listed price.
How long will it take to reach me?
Original artworks and limited edition prints usually arrive within eleven (11) to fourteen (14) business days from time of order, depending on the destination of the artwork as well as the time it takes to clear customs if the work is shipped internationally. From time of shipping, the artwork will usually arrive at the buyer’s destination between seven (7) to ten (10) business days, barring any delays due to customs clearance.

Perfect for your space
Like a painting by Koningen? Would love to own it? But it’s too big or too small? Or do you have an idea for an artwork that is something similar? Not a problem. Over the past 20 years we have made many private and commercial clients very happy with their personalised paintings.
Talk to us about your ideas and the type of painting you would like. The colours, subject matter, size and details to be included. A commission is an exciting journey of discovery for both yourself and the artist, resulting in a unique and personally satisfying artwork. A commissioned artwork becomes truly a piece of yourself, something you initiated and created together with the artist. With a commissioned artwork you will own not only a valuable piece of art, but the story of its creation will always be an inherent personal story that is much more intimate, exciting and interesting to tell to others.

This commission was placed by our gorgeous client Sherina at an exhibition in Australia.
